How I made my Intersected cutting board

1155 days ago by GaryK | 31 comments »

Here is how I made my Intersected cutting board posted here. There seems to be a lot of interest in this board so here is a blog on how I made it. First of all here’s what I planned on making. It’s the top one. After I got both the circles intersected I liked how it looked with the rounded corners so I just added in the “wedge shapes”at the top and bottom and called it done. I think that it makes it very distinctive also. As one person guessed I ...

French Fry Friday #2: November 12, 2010

1253 days ago by Chris Davis | 1 comment »

On this French Fry Friday, I’m going to feature a mirror. This was a custom mirror order that tied into the “Cars” theme. I started with my standard 6 drawer dresser painted it red for the customer, but they needed a mirror. This is the design we came up with.. It is made from two circles slightly different sizes. The outer black (tire) and the inner red (hub). I did it that way to give it some detail and to thicken the mirror frame. It was all built by turning my router into a com...

My Tools #3: More of my new JET JSG-96CS 6"x48" belt/9" disk sander

1519 days ago by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

First, some good news. The dust blowing all over last time was not indicative of poor dust collection in this machine. After closing up shop for the day, it bugged me all night, and I figured there must have been something I missed. There was. Under the belt on the back of the machine is a blast gate. D’oh. Opening that, the dust collection becomes quite good. No more dust spewing in all directions, but this thing sands very aggressively, so hard sanding does result in a little bit kick...

Spiral End Mallet #1: The Lay-Out

1708 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 12 comments »

Thanks for your interest in my new Spiral-End Mallet, based on the Lazy Larry Spiral Cheese Boards, by degoose. Obviously with the small size of the pieces, the band saw jig Larry uses wouldn’t work. This is how I adapted his GREAT idea for something a little different.The first step is to make the medallion that is inlayed in the end of the mallet. (Yes it is inlayed—-do you think I’m totally nuts?) If you are looking for a fast, easy project, this may not be it, but the en...

I cut a circle in Purple heart and then wanted to inlay it into a piece of Tasmanian blackwood.To gauge the circle need to to be cut I fitted the PH on the pin in the table and moved the router to just inside the outer edge. I then locked the X and Y axis.Drilled a 6 mm hole in the centre of the blackwood and fitted it on the pin in the table. Turned on the router plunged it and rotated the blank.Then.. Pushed out the centre and inserted the PH.. fit like a glove… wonderful moment as i...

Dust Collection #2: infiltration.... filter me this, filter me that

1922 days ago by PurpLev | 28 comments »

I ordered a 0.3 micron replacement filter from Wynn Environmental to replace my Jet DC1100 30 micron bag. Originally I was going to make a simple review for people to benefit from my experience with the new filter I got… but since it had gotten a bit more complicated, I figured this is blog-worthy, and the ‘regular’ review will follow once I experience more the performance of the filter. Disclaimer: I have had nothing but great experience from Wynn Environmental, from ...

Today at the Mason – Dixon Woodworking Toy workshop I was making the plastic windows for our Train bank. We usually make 105 or so of each item. and 1000 – 1200 total that are distributed at Christmas time. Here is the toy bank. The plastic window is inserted in a whole drilled into the sides of the bank and is held with screws. The window is the only way to take the money out of the bank. First we cut the Plexiglas circle with the center bit removed from the hole saw. a ...
